  • Blair, R.M.; Coughlin, C.M.; Minton, J. Ernest; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    The primary objective of this study was to determine if embryo survival in gilts and primiparous sows was related to variations in the periovulatory profiles of estradiol- 17β, progesterone, and luteinizing hormone. A ...
  • Carmill, J.A.; Zarkouny, S.E.; Hensley, B.A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Rates of embryo survival in lactating dairy cows were assessed in three separate studies. Based on pregnancy diagnoses 27 to 29 days after timed inseminations, survival to days 40 to 50 or day 57, depending on the study, ...
  • Feltrin, G.; Alvarado-Gilis, Christian A.; Van Bibber-Krueger, Cadra L.; Klamfoth, D.; Drouillard, James S. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2014)
    We have investigated the potential for using hydrated lime to form protective matrices with oil-rich feeds, such as flaxseed, to increase the incorporation of omega-3 fatty acids into meat. Dolomitic lime is mixed with ...
  • Newton, E.A.; Stevenson, Jeffrey S.; Minton, J. Ernest; Davis, Duane L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Eighteen sows were treated as follows: 1) 10 multiparous and four primiparous sows were separated from their litters for 6 hr/day and exposed to a mature boar for 1 hr/day during the last 8 days of lactation, and 2) four ...
  • Pendergraft, J.S.; Arns, M.J.; Raub, R.H.; Bolsen, K.K.; Brazle, F.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Fescue toxicity causes substantial production losses in sheep, cattle, and horses. These losses are attributed to an endophyte, Acremonium coenophialum. However, our results indicate that Quarter horse yearlings can ...
  • Pickrell, J.A.; Heber, A.J.; Murphy, James P.; May, M.M.; Nolan, D.; Oehme, F.W.; Schoneweis, D.; Gillespie, J.R.; Henry, S.C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Caretakers and pigs in dusty environments with particles and toxic gases may sustain health consequences. We studied concentrations of ammonia, endotoxin, and total and respirable dust particles in four mechanically ...
  • Obuz, E.; Stephens, J.W.; Grobbel, J.P.; Loughin, T.M.; Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2004)
    Our objective was to determine the effects of endpoint temperature, cooking method, and marbling on Warner-Bratzler shear force (WBSF; an objective method for determining tenderness) of three beef muscles. Eighteen subprimals ...
  • Wilson, Jonathan M.; McKinney, Leland J.; Theerarattananoon, Karnnalin; Ballard, Todd C.; Wang, Donghai; Staggenborg, Scott A.; Vadlani, Praveen V. (2014)
    The current forage handling equipment in the cellulosic ethanol industry is severely limited by the low bulk density of baled and ground biomass. Low bulk density contributes to flowability problems and lack of maximizing ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.K.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Eight Hereford, 16 Angus, and 36 part Simmental bulls were tested for 140 days (October 15, 1974 to March 4, 1975) for weight gained. Bulls were divided into four groups and fed four rations that had been formulated for ...
  • McKee, M.; Conway, K.L.; Fink, G.; Schalles, R.R.; Bolsen, K.K.; Zoellner, K.O. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1975)
    Thirty-nine Angus, Hereford, and part Simmental bulls were tested 140 days (December 18, 1973 to May 6,1974) for weight gained. Bulls were divided into four groups and fed four different rations that had been formulated ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Riley, Jack G. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1976)
    Four combinations of low (LE), moderate (ME) and high (HE) energy rations were fed to growing and finishing steers. The four treatments were: LE-ME; LE-HE; ME-ME and ME-HE. All steers were more efficient during the growing ...
  • Montgomery, Sean P.; Packard, R.L.; Forcherio, J.C.; Scott, R.R.; Blasi, Dale A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2003)
    Crossbred beef steers (n = 328, initially 495 lb) were used to determine the effects of energy supplementation on grazing and subsequent finishing performance of steers grazing early-season, native range. Treatments ...
  • Schroeder, G.F.; Moore, E.S.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2007)
    In growing pigs, when protein supply is adequate, protein deposition increases with an increase in energy intake. However, when amino acid supply is limited, protein deposition does not respond to increases in energy ...
  • Bala, S.; Schmidt, Karen A. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2011)
    Cysteine is considered a conditional amino acid for certain subpopulations. For example, in elderly people, cysteine has been associated with diverse functional properties as a general antioxidant as well as a specific ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1981)
    Enzyme (Ensila Plus) and non-protein nitrogen (Cold-flo) silage additives were evaluated with whole-plant corn silage. Cold-flo increased ensiling temperatures 6 to 80 F during the first week. Growing steers fed Ensila ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1980)
